    I've flown into and out of Liverpool Airport hundreds of times and never been near Brunswick Dock.
    The airport excuse is just another red herring being used by heritage Luddites.
    As for the scheme causing a "them and us" situation, just what are the Council doing then to prevent this in other ways and how does rejecting redevelopment help?
    Why is it only Liverpool who seem to have politicians and council mouthpieces who can spout this type of economic and social madness?

    Maro cleared the height with the airport peopel first.

    I think we should know any time between now and Thursday losing this would be a great loss to Liverpool.

    I think it's tomorrow. They will probably announce it on the day.

It would, in my opinion, take a catastrophic failure of almost all the the above plus some kind of mechanical failure, for an aircraft approaching/leaving Liverpool Airport to collide with anything in central Liverpool. But, stranger things have happened. I think any aircraft colliding with any tower on Brunswick Quay, although not impossible, highly improbable.

    So folks, pack your fear of flying in the attic, enjoy the convenience of your local airport and explore the world.

    For those interested in this Maro proposal visit http://www.ajplus.co.uk/news/news_ar...d=55848&sid=49. If true, it would extend Liverpool city centre south to at least Parliament Street or even Warwick Street. I hope it's true.

    The city centre was a triangle with one point at the Pier Head. This will make the triangle reverse. The point will be above Lime St Station and the flat of the triangle from Stanley Dock to Brunswick Dock.

    What does this report say. You need to subscribe.

    Look at that view. How Mancunians rave over Manchester is beyond me. I have tried and just can't see what they see.
